Donate to Support bereaved children

Every day in mid Essex a child or young person faces the loss of someone special. Living with bereavement is hard, but at Christmas, this sense of loss can be even more acute.

For a child, the death of a parent, grandparent, sibling or friend can have a dramatic impact on their lives, both now and in the future. That is why Farleigh Hospice’s Yo-Yo bereavement project is so important. Our team of therapists helps hundreds of young people every year, offering one-to-one counselling, art therapy groups, outdoor activities, as well as an opportunity to meet other young people in a similar situation. The team also provides advice and support to families and schools.

The service is delivered free of charge and is available to any child or young person in the mid Essex Community.

To help us continue to provide this life-changing service please donate and support a bereaved child this Christmas.
